Friday was hard. Seeing some really good friends on Thursday, really made me realise the fact that we were leaving. So when I woke up on Friday I just felt really sad about it all. I think it does not help that I am not sleeping well. Plus, being in pain also takes up a lot of my energy. All this just made me feel super emotional all day.
In the morning I had a physio appointment. It was very relaxing! The practitioner’s office is really near to our flat and I was able to walk there. There was a slight bit of rain outside, so the park was quiet and smelt wonderful. In the park are lots and lots of lilacs everywhere which are my favourite. So beautiful!

Back home I chatted to Edd for a while, answered some E-Mails and then started to pack a little bit. I put all the clothes that currently don’t fit me into a moving box to come down South in the van in a few weeks.
Then, I had some leftover pasta from the other day for lunch. I then edited a few photos for Instagram and then sewed for a bit – I started making a slightly altered Odgen Cami. It is a pattern I have sewed a few times before and I just really like the look and fit of. It also somehow does not require a whole lot of fabric so I was able to make it from leftover material I had used for a dress last year.
The rest of Friday afternoon I spent in bed. First, I tried to work a bit on a talk that I have to give in a few weeks. However, after a while I gave up as I was quite exhausted. I then watched an episode of Shtisel, a Netflix show about a Orthodox Jewish family that our neighbour had recommeded to us. I don’t usually watch TV shows, but I thought I’d give this one a go. It is a dream of mine to learn Hebrew one day. The show is in Hebrew with substitles and I just love listening to the language.
Then Edd and I had dinner and watched friends as per usual. Afterwards I felt extremely down somehow. Edd convincend me to go for a walk as fresh air always makes me feel better, which was also the case on this day.
Back home, I watched the news, which probably wasn’t super helpful in feeling depressed. However, I then finished sewing my Odgen Cami whilst starting to listen to “Beach Read” by Emily Henry, which was extremely enjoyable. The combination of sewing and listening to a nice and breezy story made me feel a lot better.
After finishing my top I wrote my blog post for Thursday and then headed to bed.
